Question about SanDisk Sansa c250 (2 GB) MP3 Player (SDMX7-2048)
Sandisk about this problem songs not being recognized on the computer but still on the player:
Use this links as main help thread.
The standard connection type of C200 series is MTP = Media Transfer Protocol. In this mode you can see the connected device as a portable player.
Songs that are put on the player in UMS = Universal Mass Storage mode (also called MSC = Mass Storage Class), seeing the device as a removable disk can only be seen in the players' UMS mode and vice versa.
Check the setting of the USB mode on the display of the C250:
> Settings / USB / Autodetect or MSC mode
Autodetect = MTP mode: computer sees the player Sansa C250.
MSC mode: computer sees a removable disk.
Now 2 things could have happened:
1. Music is put on the player in MSC mode and now the player is
connected in MTP mode or vice versa.
2. There are bad sectors or corrupted files are transferred on the players' removable disk.
Using Windows Media Player:
